Jude:   Thank you very much for your detailed response (and I didn't mean to ruin your weekend!)   I am incredibly pressed for time right now, effectively doing two jobs, and I need to take a brief hiatus on this dialogue.  However, I did make a few replies to your response, just to highlight the points where I am still having some problems.  My replies are in bold in the attached document.  I hope that we can come back to this at some point in the future.

Thanks for all the effort you put into your comments.
